I've been having trouble uploading files and updating online files while using the beta of Firefox 3.  When I try to create/update a blogger entry, the bar at the bottom says "javascript:void(0)" for a while, then opens a blank pages.  Changes are never saved.  When I try to upload pix to blogger, picasa, photoshop express, and flickr, I initially got a few through with mostly errors--then I got none through at all.  All websites work normally & upload properly if I use (gack) Internet Explorer.  I've since uninstalled Firefox 3 and reinstalled Firefox 2 instead, and everything so far is working fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make changes/specify files to be uploaded the upload/publish button
3.get error message or blank screen.  Error messages are never very informative.  Just say "upload failed" or similar.  Photoshop expres just shows a yellow triangle with an "!" inside of it.
Actual Results:  
Uploads fail/no changes are made to blog entry.

Expected Results:  
Should have uploaded my pictures or saved a new/revised version of my blog entry.

I'm running Vista and AVG virus protection.  My security settings were as permissible as possible--accept all cookies, java, and javascript.  IExplorer and Firefox2 performed the same functions without problems.

Yes i have the same problem, Thunderbird is standard but picasa brings the pictures to outlook. Changing to windows mail and back to Thunderbird brings no help. Failure occurs after recent update.

I get the message "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the message request." when I try to mail pictures from Picasa 3. Have to export them first, then attach them manually. Didn't have this problem with earlier versions of T'bird. But Picasa 3 is also new, so could it be a Picasa bug?

But when I change the settings of Picasa to allow a choice of mail client, it works ok with Gmail. That tends to suggest that T'bird is the problem.
And as it is sufficiently annoying to stop people from using Mozilla, the problem deserves to be given some priority.

My problem seems to have sorted itself out. 
Still find it annoying to have to keep closing all those tabs on T'bird, but like the search facility.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode or a fresh profile? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.
